Kīlauea volcano erupting again at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park

Kīlauea Volcano, which erupted for roughly four months of 2018 at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, has resumed eruptions following a series of earthquakes, according to the U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. An eruption of Kīlauea was visible within the volcano's caldera, which was containing all the lava.


The observatory recorded a magnitude-4.4 earthquake located beneath Kīlauea Volcano's south flank on Sunday at 10:36 p.m. HST. The earthquake was centered about 8.7 miles (14 kilometers) south of Fern Forest, near the Hōlei Pali area of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park at a depth of 4 miles (6 kilometers).
